WWhat do you mean by "not secure"?

If you mean, not "https," you may find this discussion of interest: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ol-4175608500/

If I go to https://www.androidquestions.org/, my browser complains that the certificate is issued to linuxquestions.org:

Quote:
www.androidquestions.org uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names: www.linuxquestions.org, linuxquestions.org

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
I guess that's what the OP means.

Android questions and Linux questions are peer sites. Your LQ login is valid on AQ.

I'm not sure exactly how that factors into the certificates, but pretty sure this is part of the explanation.

Thanks for the heads up. We're currently evaluating the future of AQ, but if it remains we'll be sure to get a cert installed.
